    Clubroot in the Peace Region – Information Update

    Clubroot Disease of Canola—Information Update Clubroot Infection and Spread

    Recently, confirmation of clubroot symptoms were found in multiple fields in Big Lakes County and M.D of Greenview in commercial canola fields. What this means is that growers within the MD of Greenview need to be vigilant with their scouting program and have in place a management strategy for this disease. Effectively managing any plant disease requires an understanding of how it survives within fields and the conditions that allow the population to increase and spread.  For more information on this topic, please click on the link provided.  Additional questions can be forwarded to Quentin Bochar, Manager Agriculture Services at 780-524-7615.

    Ditching and Brushing Near Pipelines

    Greenview and Transcanada would like to remind everyone working in the vicinity of pipelines to take extra caution and to get the appropriate agreements and approvals in place before commencing work. Brushing and ditching poses a significant risk to pipelines as it removes topsoil. Brushing equipment is also a potential risk to pipelines due to the substantial weight. Extending from either side of the pipeline centerline is a space, formerly known as a safety zone, called the prescribed area. Within this zone excavation using mechanical equipment requires approval which can be arranged by contacting Transcanada. For further information on working in the vicinity of pipelines visit albertaonecall.com, Download the Dig Info AB app or call 1.800.242.3447.
